Filled with the intense, frenetic gameplay of a classic top-down shooter, Novastrike will also bring a number of innovations to the genre, including continued updates and content additions to keep the game fluid and changing.
Hardened shooter veterans will find a wealth of options in their arsenal in Novastrike, a sci-fi war zone that pits players against an onslaught by the world-conquering Draelus. From the cockpit of their experimental Scythe fighter, able pilots will utilize free-roaming flight and multiple weapon variations to combat an armada of alien forces in the air and on land. With ship and weapon upgrades, and a slew of allied units, players of Novastrike will engage the Draelus in a variety of planetary environments, completing objectives and facing fearsome opponents in their fight to drive back the invasion.
Seven expansive challenging stages driven by objective-based goals.
Free-roaming flight: there aren’t any rails here, so players can fly in any direction.
Progressive weapon acquisition and upgrade system: as the player collects weapon drops from enemy ships the weapons themselves become available to the Scythe – there are nine base weapon systems, each with three subsequent upgrade levels.
Air and ground targets: two separate weapon systems allow the player to combat both air and ground opponents.
Multi-sectioned enemies where individual components can be destroyed; for example, carriers have hangars that launch fighters – these hangars can be destroyed independently of destroying the Carrier, preventing the Carrier from launching additional fighters.
Multitude of enemies and environments: players combat enemy fighters, bombers, kamikazes, aces, carriers, and destroyers, all leading to an end-boss fight.
You’re not alone: friendly fighters, bombers, and destroyers will aid you in your efforts to vanquish the Draelus invasion.
DualShock 3 support.
